But when it came time to announce his choice, Copeland elected to commit and sign with the Gators, all while wearing a a red suit.
Jacob Copeland, a four-star wide receiver from Pensacola, Florida, announced his commitment to the University of Florida on Wednesday afternoon. With three SEC schools in the mix, the young man chose to take his talents to Gainesville to play for the Florida Gators.
Tennessee and Alabama fans aren't the only ones upset with Jacob Copeland's decision to sign with Florida. As a top-100 recruit, he should shine in Florida. The man directly behind him was wearing a Tennessee windbreaker hat and his mother, who was one of the people wearing an Alabama sweatshirt, also had a Tennessee beanie on.
I mean, it was fairly obvious she had her two favorites in mind while Copeland had another idea. But then his mother returned to the scene, and wrapped her arms her around her son, providing somewhat of a resolution to a most non-traditional signing day experience.
To his credit, though, Copeland handled that tough moment exceptionally well and kept his cool as his mother left.
Copeland's mother eventually came back into the Escambia gym and hugged her son.
